Protective Industrial Products, Inc. (PIP), a leading supplier of hand protection and general safety products, announces the expansion of their industrial salesforce. PIP’s recent acquisitions, including West Chester Protective Gear, QRP and Worldwide Protective Products, uniquely positioned them to capitalize on the synergies and expertise of four leading Safety organizations to deliver one of the largest salesforces in the PPE industry.
The expansion includes an increase in the number of dedicated Regional Sales Managers in the field to provide greater customer intimacy and support along with the introduction of Vertical Specialists to complement Regional Sales Managers and agency representatives. Vertical Specialists will provide subject matter expertise to distributors in specialized channels and to distributors with end-users who have complex safety needs. Strategic accounts will continue to be supported by Strategic Account Managers, Key Account Managers and Field Specialists. PIP is also investing in their Inside Sales team to service specialty distributors. Altogether, these enhancements amount to a salesforce of more than 200 salespeople.
This salesforce expansion includes not only the creation of new positions but the promotion of key sales team members with industry-proven professional backgrounds. Matt Moseley, with nearly twenty years of experience as a product specialist and account manager, is promoted to Regional Sales Director of the South region. Kerry Dyer is appointed Director, Vertical Markets and brings a powerful combination of leadership and knowledge in end-user market development. Jim Wilson, a seasoned leader with an extensive background in industrial sales, assumes the role of Director, Strategic Accounts, working alongside Kurt Wanner. Together, they will oversee U.S. Strategic Account Managers and Specialists as well as select Key Account Managers.
“This investment represents our commitment to boldly deliver on the promise of bringing our customers best-in-class support, training and market expertise,” states John Romano, PIP’s Chief Commercial Officer. “The expansion takes our service to the next level by providing our customers with a team of multi-faceted industry experts to better support their needs” concludes Mr. Romano.
